American Idol is VERY close to signing their first judge!

Kelly Clarkson is shaping up to be ABC's first choice for judge on "American Idol"!

Rumors are that ABC has expressed "serious interest" in Clarkson, who won Season 1 of the show. 

We're also hearing that ABC is considering a once a week format where results from voting will go down the following week. That will make it easier for the judges and the host, who will almost certainly be Ryan Seacrest.
